A family drama short. Ryan receives a mysterious invitation from his estranged mother, and grapples with his father's illness in the midst.
Daryl is Ryan's father. His wife leaving early on in their marriage crushed him. Despite suffering from Chronic Obstructive Pulmonary Disease, he tries his best to give Ryan a life worth living. He requires care, and feels guilt for it. Ryan's dismissive attitude doesn't help much. In a previous life, he was a mean man, and father. Now, he's trying to do better.
